Brad, Chad, and Torey were the story. Kevan is the MAN.

<p><b> The Bruins sent the Kings packing in regulation, and have earned a short breather. </b></p>

<li> Sip a steaming espresso shot of game recap. "Brad and Chad send Kings home sad." [<a href="http://hockeyjournal.com/blog/blackGold/Brad_and_Chad_send_Kings_home_sad">NewEnglandHockeyJournal</a>]</li>

<li> Brad Marchand is feeling it again, and tops the NHL in shorthanded goals. Opponents cannot be entirely comfortable on their power plays. [<a href="http://www.bostonglobe.com/sports/2014/01/21/bruins-brad-marchand-stays-hot-with-two-more-goals/X2tTTcHriOGGB3wQ7aPrCK/story.html">TheBostonGlobe</a>]</li>

<li> Chad Johnson was solid in net, and grateful to have both eyes on the puck. [<a href="http://bostonherald.com/sports/bruins_nhl/boston_bruins/2014/01/given_more_work_chad_johnson_shines_on">BostonHerald</a>]</li>

<li> Adam McQuaid remains day-to-day, and Zach Trotman 's callup was more leisurely than his first. Dougie Hamilton is skating. Milan Lucic fought Jordan Nolan over a hit to Krug, and Krug later tallied a goal. Ryan Spooner struggled at the faceoff circle.

<li> The Bruins' defensive Young Guns came through again, the four had only 120 NHL games under their belts. Torey Krug scored, and Kevan Miller clocked Dustin Brown twice. [<a href="http://bostonherald.com/sports/bruins_nhl/boston_bruins/2014/01/bruins_overthrow_kings">BostonHerald</a>]</li>

<li> Next, the Bruins have a brief break as they look ahead to the Olympics. Security is on their minds. Chris Kelly continues skating on his own. [<a href="http://www.telegram.com/article/20140120/NEWS/301209739/0/news03">WorcesterTelegram&Gazette</a>]</li>

<li> The Bruins faced the last two Stanley Cup champion teams, and came away with three points. Zdeno Chara, Johnny Boychuk, and the rookies are holding down the defense.
